Andrew Elstner with Torche at MHoW (more by Justin Tyler)
Tilts

You might know the name Andrew Elstner from his role as the recently added member of Torche, but before that Elstner was a part of another crew from his native St. Louis, TILTS. The stoner-y four piece definitely subscribe to a similar aesthetic as Torche - sugar-y pop masked under rumbling Orange woofers, but also steer close to things like Van Halen's party vibe or Queens of the Stone Age's sludge-pop.

TILTS are currently using Kickstarter to help pay for the master in order to prepare their debut LP for release on the venerable Robotic Empire. The band has met their goal, but you can still contribute to get anything from the digital LP to a free show. Head to their kickstarter for more details.

Perhaps inspired by the recent resurgence of Diamond Dave and the brothers, TILTS have released the new mastered track in "Hot for Pizza" (ahem) from their now-funded forthcoming LP on Robotic Empire. Stream that along with a good chunk of the band's recorded output below.

Reminder: Torche will hit the road for a string of dates with Corrosion of Conformity.

Van Halen recently announced 2012 tour dates (and a new song). Tickets for their MSG dates are currently on AMEX presale and go on regular sale Friday (tickets for 2/28 here and 3/1 here).

All tour dates and streams are below.

^ Calm the fuck down, you hipster scumbag. Live and let live. Go find a life.

My God, some people really aren't happy no matter what.

Actually, it sounds like you who isn't calm. I was fine, just goofing on you.

Oh, and BTW, usually anybody so quick to throw out the hipster card usually is one :)
